PARIS – Greg Zemlansky, who is well-known for his poetry, has self-published his second children’s book titled “The White Goldfish.” His first book for children is titled “The Littlest Raindrop.”

The International Library of Poetry of Ownings Mills, Md., named Zemlansky a 2007 poetry ambassador. The award was given for his efforts in promoting and sharing poetry with friends, family, the community, in the Advertiser Democrat and on his morning DJ show on WOXO radio.

Zemlansky’s book of poetry titled “Life and Love” shares personal experiences: the challenges of raising an autistic child, the pain of divorce, the death of his parents, the bond of friendship, even the misery of Maine’s 1998 ice storm. The poems are divided into eight categories: life poems, love poems, people poems, religions, nature, earth, seasons and Christmas.

A distinguished member of the International Poetry Society, Zemlansky has received many awards, including two International Poet of Merit crystal awards and several commemorative medallions. Some of his winning poems are on

“Poetry is the unspoken love of the heart – a treasure of words to be discovered,” says Zemlansky.

His poetry is available at Books N Things on Main Street in Norway, at Island Tree Publishing in Paris and at the Norway and Paris public libraries.
